Ian is a partner in the private client and tax team.

He advises international families, private banks and trust companies on UK and offshore trust, tax and estate planning. Ian’s work has a particular focus on planning for UK resident non-domiciliaries and tax and residence issues for individuals moving to or from the UK.

Ian has also built up considerable experience advising individuals, trustees and financial institutions on the scope of the Common Reporting Standard ( CRS ) with particular emphasis on the extent to which reporting will be required in relation to complex trust structures.
